Subject RE: Hbase ExportSnapshot with AWS
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 20:13:18 GMT
There is no option to export materialized snapshot to AWS yet - only to another HBase cluster.
You can export snapshot metadata to s3 using S3 FileSystem  in Hadoop, but this is not you
are looking for.
You can export snapshots to table(s) in another cluster and then use distcp to copy data over
to s3.
One caveat: you have to have spare cluster for that, because you can't export table's snapshot
to different cluster and
different table (name).

yea, too many limitations. One major enhancement to snapshots which is definitely welcomed
is ability to export materialized
snapshots to a different DFS location (S3 in this case)
